Term 4

Term 4

2020/2021

 

This term's topic is DINOSAURS!

 

Our topic this term is ‘Dinosaurs’. Children will be researching when dinosaurs lived and why they became extinct. We will be making a timeline of the different prehistoric periods including Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous and Extinct. We will think about how we can find out about dinosaurs and what types of evidence we might look at to help us. Children will find out about the significant life of palaeontologist and fossil collector Mary Anning.

 

Phonics

 

During Phonics we will continue to practice Phase 5 phonemes and our Year 1 common exception words. Children will be screened as preparation for the June phonics screening. Although this wont take place this academic year (2020/2021), we will still go ahead with a more informal screening to assess our children and help plan for any gaps in knowledge. 

 

Animals Including Humans

 

In Science children will be focussing on grouping and classifying animals. They will think about which animals belong to which groups, for example, birds, reptiles, mammals, fish. Children will then go onto group animals according to what they eat using the key words carnivore, herbivore and omnivore.
